Hey, folks --
So, I've just returned to my dorm room to find a door-dropped advertisement for a new pizzeria called "dimio," which is celebrating their grand opening at 1782 Mass Ave. (between Harvard and Porter squares) and is going to give me a free nantucket nectar if i give them back their advertising materials, or something like that.
Now, I could be totally wrong, but I'm pretty sure that this "Dimio" is just a transplanted Vici, the fair-to-middling thin crust place that was recently ousted from coolidge corner by the superior Upper Crust. It's got the same fonts and color schemes, the same rather high self-image ("Cambridge's most anticipated pizza and panini restaurant," it says; the fact that it's not even opened and they've already got a "signature" gourmet pizza), the same damn leeks on their basic napoletana. They HAVE added a couple of new paninis, in which they continue to express an intense fondness for sweet onions. Also, there's this one pizza that looks sort of interesting, because it's got "italian tuna with chopped tomato filets," and is topped with a fried egg.
What's going on? Anyone heard anything? Anyone been?
